Before The Wedding Booking several mani-pedi sessions in the months leading up to the wedding to maintain well-kept cuticles and feet should also include taking the necessary steps to keep nails strong and healthy. Garland stresses the importance of getting enough Calcium and most importantly, “staying hydrated!” She also recommends taking Biotin for hair, skin and nails, which can be found in any drugstore Other nail care essentials include a good cuticle oil like O.P.I. Avoplex Cuticle Oil to Go, ($7.95 at drugstore.com.) Garland also suggests the Crystal Nail File ($12 at sephora.com) which lasts for years, is easy to clean, and has a refined surface that expertly shapes nails, keeping snagging and peeling to a minimum. Nails are just another way to inject personality and style into your bridal look. As Garland speaks fondly of brides, she notes, “Every time I do a bride’s nails, I think about how she will look as she’s being photographed, holding her bouquet and wearing open-toed shoes. It makes me happy to think that this will be one less thing for her to worry about, with everything else going on that day.”

n 2007 the collective wedding unconscious affected three women in three different parts of the country. Inspired by a love of weddings, Janie Medley, Abby Larson, and Lela Cerff-Liso manifested their interest by creating world-renown blogs that are today, industry mainstays followed by millions of brides. Luring them away from their demanding sites for a few moments, we discovered their inspirations, career rewards, and thoughts on the future of the weddings.
